Happy New Year! Our first guest of 2022 is Joe Nocera, a long-time business columnist, magazine writer and author. He spent a decade at Fortune before joining the New York Times in 2005, where he was a business columnist, an op-ed columnist and a sports business columnist. From 2017 to 2021, he wrote columns for Bloomberg—as well as the hit podcast The Shrink Next Door. In October, he returned to The New York Times as a contributor to the DealBook Newsletter. Neil Parekh, our Executive Producer, will be guest hosting.
Joe’s books include “All The Devils Are Here” (co-authored with Bethany McLean) and “Indentured: The Inside Story of the Rebellion Against The NCAA” (co-authored with Ben Strauss). Jack Shafer, then at Slate, described his work as "demystifying the world of business with original thinking, brainy reporting and the ability to see around corners."
He is a three-time winner of the Gerald Loeb award for excellence in business journalism and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in 2007. His first book, "A Piece of the Action: How the Middle Class Joined the Money Class," won the New York Public Library's 1995 Helen Bernstein Award as the best non-fiction book of the year. He is currently working on a book about Covid and the economy (with Bethany McLean), and developing new podcasts.
